Anne Hathaway surprised us all at yesterday's Met Gala with her newly peroxide blonde hair and it got us thinking — did she colour it in one go? Or has it been gradual and she's been in hiding since her Oscar win? She admitted it is only temporary and plans to keep the look a little while longer, but what if you're a brunette and plan on going blonde for keeps? We spoke to Wayne Lewis from Original A and Original & Mineral for expert colour advice. Keep reading.
Drew Barrymore is no stranger to hair colours and only recently stepped out with dark auburn locks to promote her new makeup line. Then at the GLAAD Awards (April 20), she was seen sporting an all-over honey colour, but the recent change of a bright blonde hue has led us to believe she was prepping for this for a while. What do you think? Are you loving this look on Drew?
Our resident and insanely pretty tomboy has had a makeover. Sporting long blonde extensions for Bombshells By JAG — part of the brand's Get Back campaign — Ruby Rose would be almost unrecognisable if it weren't for those signature tattoos. The iconic label wanted to go back to its rock roots (did you know Bianca Jagger was a huge fan?), so they enlisted our very own DJ-slash-model-slash-presenter, Ruby.
Darren Borthwick helped transform Ruby's chin-length hair by adding blonde extensions and cutting them in to give that sexy, rock chic vibe. Ah, hot! But not only do we have a first look at Ruby as the face of Bombshells By JAG, we're also pleased to show you the film clip set to run alongside the images. To watch it, keep reading . . .
Our favourite Aussie blonde, Lara Bingle, is taking her signature messy locks darker. She posted a picture of her newly darkened hair to her Instagram account earlier this week, so we went straight to her hairdresser Jaye Edwards to find out how he made it happen. Going from a really cool, icy blonde, to a darker golden colour can be tricky, find out the steps Jaye took and what products he uses on Lara's hair after the break.
Yesterday we were so all about recreating Lauren's soft side bun, that we, um, totally forgot to talk colour change. See at the VH1 Save the Music Gala in NYC earlier this week, Ms. Conrad showed that she's keeping up with seasonal hair and makeup colours across the pond by debuting a new, darker hair colour accentuated with on-trend berry lipstick. It's all quite a change from the sunny California-girl look she wore at a book signing just a couple weeks back. Which look do we prefer, peeps? Her subtle ombré blonde or this richer, darker style?
Well lookee who we have here: Little Miss Taylor Swift on the cover of her latest single release, Back to December. I’m always surprised to see Taylor without her trademark curls, but her straightened strands are always a welcome change, like when she attended the CMT Music Awards earlier this year, and when she appeared in US Elle and they gave her straight hair a sexy, dishevelled look. This time ’round she’s kept things simple and sleek with a full fringe. Not too edgy. But it’s sweet, just like Taylor. What are your thoughts on Taylor’s tresses?
It’s hard to believe that it was only four years ago that the girls of The Hills were relative unknowns trying to navigate acting and fashion careers in LA. Now they’re bigger (fame-wise and, er, bust-wise), blonder and continuing world domination, even though the show that launched their careers has wrapped for good. Seeing as the last episode airs tonight on MTV, there’s no better time to check out the beauty archives of Lauren, Whitney, Audrina, Heidi, Lo, Stephanie and Kristin. From Madonna perms to balayage, nude makeup to bright lips, between them these girls have tried everything. Take a look before you check in with them tonight for one last time.
Y'know how it is. You're sitting with celeb stylist Andy Lecompte and Joico colourist George Papanikolas playing Clueless. You're Tai, Andy's Cher and George is Dion. And then it's Makeover Madness time. Which is how you find yourself back with a blonde bob after quite some time playing on the dark side. Don't tell me this has never happened to you. OK, it hasn't happened to me either. But then I'm not Nicole Richie. The reality-star-turned-jewellery-designer-slash-sometime-store-opener is now back sporting a beautifully tousled blonde bob. LOVE. It's like a softer version of her '05 Vanity Fair look. Me likey. You too?
When you think of blondes, is there anyone more iconic than Marilyn Monroe? According to a poll commissioned by Clairol Nice 'n Easy, Marilyn is considered to be the greatest blonde of all time. "It's amazing to think that even now, almost half a century after her death, she has still beaten modern blondes to the top spot," said a spokesperson for Clairol.
Do you think she's the greatest, or should someone else have nabbed the top spot? The survey's complete list is heavy on British B-list TV presenters — meaning iconic blondes like Jean Harlow and Gwyneth Paltrow missed out. Check out the complete list now and tell us who your favourite blonde bombshell is.
Forget about which actress will next play Jackie O.—now the race is on for the hottest Marilyn Monroe impersonator in Hollywood. Rumours have been swirling for months that Michelle Williams will play the iconic blond bombshell in the upcoming biopic My Week With Marilyn and now Naomi Watts will also slip into Miss Monroe's high heels in Blonde. Sounds like we've got dueling Marilyns on our hands, but who do you think is a better fit?
